282 Sound Effects For Your Podcast – Speak It Forward Bootcamp Review – Is TweetBot For Desktop Worth $20? And Much More
Summary: Speak It Forward Bootcamp Review I spent a few days last week in Atlanta, Georgia so that I could attend Kent Julian's Speak It Forward Bootcamp. I went because I've been receiving an increasing number of invitations to speak publicly and I wanted to simply take my public speaking to the "next level." Below are just a few of the photos that I shot during the two and a half days I was there. (Taken with my Canon 60D) In this episode of Podcast Answer Man, I share my expectations of what I hoped to achieve by attending the Speak It Forward Bootcamp and provide a review of the value that I got out of my participation.

Without a doubt, the best iOS app for Twitter that has ever existed is the TweetBot app for iPhone. Tapbots, the developer of TweetBot now has a desktop version of TweetBot for the Mac OS. In this episode, I share some of the reasons why I love TweetBot so much and I give you my thoughts on whether or not the desktop version is worth the $20. Pat Flynn's Blog Post About Half-Finished Projects I opened this episode of Podcast Answer Man by sharing my thoughts on Pat Flynn's latest blog post titled "The Sad Truth About Your Half-Finished Projects." I highly encourage everyone to go and read that full post. I know that for many, creating a podcast has been their "Half-Finished Project." I've seen far too many people spend weeks, months, and sometimes years, working on getting the look and feel of their website just right and they simply failed to gain any momentum from creating great content while they had that initial passion and excitement about the message they wanted to share. If you are wanting to get that podcast project off the ground, I highly encourage you to attend my next Podcasting A to Z session.

Felicia Gopaul called in to ask if I had any resources for finding sound effects that she could use in her show. While doing some research to answer this question, I was thrilled to have found FreeSound.org. From their site, they explain that "Freesound aims to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, bleeps, ... released under Creative Commons licenses that allow their reuse." Freesound was started in 2005 in the Music Technology Group of Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain. Currently it is being maintained and developed by the Freesound team, which is basically composed by current and former researchers and students of the research group.
